BBC £40k plus, depending on skills and experience Closing date 27 June 2021
We are the Learning Team for the BBC Proms and London-based BBC Orchestras and Choirs. We produce high-quality and creative learning experiences and content which offer as many people as possible the chance to engage with the music we make at the BBC. We are a team of people who love music and are committed to nurturing talent and championing engagement with live music.

In our Learning programme we focus on creating opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds to get up close to the music and the musicians. This might be through our landmark schools programme BBC Ten Pieces ; our national Young Composer scheme encouraging 12-18 year-olds to find their sound; developing partnership programmes with our new community in East London as part of the BBC’s move to East Bank, or through our family-friendly events and activities.

We’re looking for a Project Manager to join our team.

You’ll also get the opportunity to work in collaboration with external arts and cultural organisations from across the UK. Our audiences are at the heart of what we do and you’ll be working directly with them to deliver digital and live events and creative participatory work that engage communities, schools and musicians of all abilities with the BBC. With the ability to deliver big online projects your work has the potential to reach millions of people through our online resources, BBC Sounds and BBC iPlayer.

We are looking for someone who:

* shares our enthusiasm for music and live events.
* is committed to creating inclusive opportunities for people of all backgrounds to participate in arts and culture.
* can bring a creative, imaginative and innovative approach to reaching audiences through live and digital platforms.
* can originate and develop creative ideas which engage diverse audiences in a demanding creative environment.
